'll go along -- >> look, i was someone against that. i remember "new york times" headline, obama opposes cut to key democratic pillar, social security, we love elderly people. they usually don't want to be outgunned on standing up for people who work their own lives and need a social safety net. >> we love old people too. >> i said elderly. >> nice to see you at the table again. >> we know americans trust in major institutions like wall street and the government has been following for years. there's a new survey that says we don't trust each other. it has plummeted to one third. are you among them? david sutherland says, i go by the stone cold steve austin catch phrase, trust no one. like us on facebook and lots of great content there. trust me. it is just -- >> on fire today. >> oh, man. wow. >> see the laughter around the table. we're going to get you caught up on everything in the news cycle and krystal ball will tell us about her black friday. she was checking out the picket lines and you can check out in a group chat tomorrow right after the show. we promote the web on tv, send in t
the earned income tax credit. one way they are doing that is through obama care which provides a new health benefit to low wage workers who don't get insurance through work. part is what is politically attractive, it doesn't have an explicit cost to taxpayers, it pushes the cost on to employers. the problem with any program with a hidden economic cost, it does flow through somewhere. for example, from retailers that have a lot of minimum wage employees and to some extent in the form of lower employment for people with low wages. it would be nice to talk about a broader sweep of policies aimed at increasing a lot of people with low incomes. nobody is willing to talk about things that cost money to the taxpayer. >> i don't want to get in a big debate about the minimum wage today, maybe another time but the research seems to show that there is little to no impact in terms of increasing unemployment. we have natural experiments all across the country with states and localities that have varied levels of the minimum wage. i did want to listen to what the president had to say, bigger picture abou
that he could begin doing this all over again. i thought the biggest news out of his 15 minutes on the stage today was that he called it obama care. don't forget nancy pelosi was saying the other week, it's not obama care, it's the affordable care act. what the president was saying, it's obama care. when he was really doing, i agree with you, talking mostly to democrats today, i think. he was saying if you want this not to be a political liability, then you have to go out and help me sell this and help me make it work. almost like launching another political campaign here where he's saying to organizing for america or liberal and progressive groupz and any supporters of the law or democratic elected officials all across the country, get people signed up. especially younger and healthier people so that this will work. he said, there's no going back. it's not going to be repealed not as long as i'm president. let's sell it and make it work. he was basically speaking to the troops today about what sales points they should make. >> you mentioned those troops and organizing for ameri
has helped wall street while main street has continued to suffer. the obama care bill has helped big pharma and insurance companies. and there hasn't been a lot of focus on closing looploopholes. i think this speech, if it does signal the beginning of a new, sustained focus for him, could be hopefully a turning point because we do need as a country moral leadership like the kind that the president could provide to focus on this problem, and it doesn't have to be a zero-sum game between left and right, democrat and republican. i have written a lot about how republicans have been terrible at even talking about the problem of poverty, but there are some voices out there talking about it. and if the president could kind of launch a national project and provide moral leadership for business, for republicans, for democrats, and bring people together, i think that could be a significant legacy of his presidency. >> yeah, and i'd put it a little differently. there's one study that shows lower income americans have benefitted under this administration than any in the last 30 years, largely be
